Retain tenants by keeping their home rentals free from pests. It is part of your responsibility as the landlord to keep tenants satisfied by keeping the environment clean.

After identifying the type of pest and how they enter the property, it is now time to eradicate them. If the infestation is mild, you can do it yourself. But if the infestation is severe call the exterminator. For mild infestations you can use bug sprays, rodenticides and fly paper to eliminate insects and rodents. Remember to destroy the breeding ground of the pest.
Keep the property clean and remind tenants to do their part to maintain the cleanliness. Prevent re-infestation by doing necessary repairs like sealing cracks on the wall. Do not store stagnant water inside the property. Stagnant water serves as the breeding for insects.
